Helping you communicate security concepts

Scarfone Cybersecurity is dedicated to helping federal agencies, cybersecurity training providers, and others communicate technical cybersecurity info to external and internal audiences. Founded by Karen Scarfone, the company is based on the belief that security professionals will continue to fall behind attackers until we become more adept at communication.

Red Typewriter

Content Writing and Revision

Writing is an iterative process that merges two difficult skills in the security realm: knowing what to say, and knowing how to say it. Karen strives to communicate your messages in a clear, accurate, and honest way. She only works on projects that she believes in. And she always looks for something new to say.


Karen can write and revise technical guidance, standards, articles, ebooks, training courses, and other content for you on a wide variety of security topics. She can use MS Word, Google Docs, Markdown, LaTeX, or any other platform you prefer.
